Declaring a major in Folklore and Ethnomusicology

Once you have applied to Indiana University through the Office of Admissions and enrolled as an incoming freshman, you typically enter the University Division. If you are interested in earning a major in Folklore and Ethnomusicology, your first goal is to be admitted into the College of Arts and Sciences. This requires 26 credit hours of coursework, completion of the English requirement, and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0.

Potential Folklore and Ethnomusicology students who are considering Indiana University or who are already enrolled at Indiana University are encouraged to apply for admission to the Hutton Honors College.

It’s a good idea to meet with our academic advisor early in your college experience. They can help you declare a major or minor in Folklore and Ethnomusicology and assist you in charting a course that helps you meet your personal goals.
